Research Interests

Dr. Zopf integrates additive manufacturing, or 3D printing, in medical applications to enhance patient care and outcomes. He is involved in medical device development and tissue engineering for several applications within Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery. One area of focus is Pediatric congenital and craniofacial malformations. Tissue engineering focus is on cartilaginous tissue engineering for ear and nose reconstruction. These tissue scaffolds are in preclinical evaluation.

Another focus is using 3D printing to develop high fidelity simulation devices to enrich surgical training. The use of medical models is also being investigated as is their potential to improve surgical outcomes and patient and family satisfaction.
